I am pleased to announce that I was recently interviewed by the Central Valley Business Times regarding negotiations and regarding my book.  The interview includes an audio and written part.  Here is a brief excerpt.  I hope you like it.

It’s part of the fabric of life, but when it comes to negotiating, few people do it well, says Steven Mehta.

“Whether we’re negotiating the sale of a product or whether we’re negotiating with our spouse … everything becomes a negotiation in life,” says Mr. Mehta, a Valencia-based attorney and mediator who specializes in negotiations. Becoming a better negotiator is a skill that can be learned, he says. “One of the biggest problems that happens for small businesses as well as other negotiators is the failure to properly prepare for the negotiation,” says Mr. Mehta. “Superior negotiators prepare approximately 400 percent more than average negotiators.”

I wanted to share with you the results of our first wine tasting competition that happened over this last weekend.  For those of you thinking, how does wine tasting connect to mediation, my answer is sometimes after a hard day in mediation, you might need a nice glass of wine.

So here they are, 20 wines under $20.  I have ranked each of them based upon approximately 30 people tasting them and ranking them.  The maximum score was 25 points with 5 points for each category (aroma, flavor, appearance, overall impression & drinkability).  I must also point out for the wine aficionados, that some of the wines were bought on sale by some of the participants.

Congratulations to the winning wine submitted by Sarah Bolin.  Of special attention, wines no. 5 & 15 had substantial conversation about them and were the early favorites during the night.  The winning wine suddenly dashed out from the back of the pack and won the wine competition glasses down.

Thank you to all that participated.
